        Der Vetter Schauer beim Spielen der Querflöte, 1811

      - Technik: Bleistift auf Papier. Beschriftung: unten rechts signiert, datiert und bezeichnet: "JAKlein del: 1811 Nürnberg", verso bezeichnet: "Der Vetter Schauer aus Nbg", Sammlungsstempel Henirich Lempertz, Köln (Lugt Nr. 1337). Provenienz: Sammlung Heinrich Lempertz, Köln. Grösse: 15,5 x 10,2 cm (Darstellung). Zustand: Insgesamt guter Zustand, minimal fleckig. Beschreibung: Präsent und doch abwesend, so begegnet uns der Vetter Schauer auf Johann Adam Kleins Zeichnung. Der Versenkung in die musikalische Übung steht die Körperlichkeit der Zeichnung gegenüber. Anders als bei Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki oder Wilhelm von Kobell, die ähnliche Momentaufnahmen ihres nächsten Umfeldes getätigt haben, ist die ganze Figur des Mannes mit kräftigem Stich betont und verneint somit den flüchtigen Moment. Lediglich die Umgebung bekommt etwas von der Spontaneität zu spüren, wenn sie sich mit dünneren Linien und schemenhaften Andeutung zufrieden geben muss. Doch trotz der Präsenz entzieht Klein dem Betrachter sein Gegenüber wieder, wenn er den Hut tief über die Augen rutschen lässt, so dass sich nur ein halbes Porträt ergibt, das den wichtigsten Teil verschweigt. So nistet sich trotz der vermeintlich klaren Wiedergabe die Ambivalenz des Flüchtigen in die Darstellung ein. Unser Blatt reiht sich in eine Gruppe von Freundschaftsdarstellungen ein, die Klein gegen Ende seiner Studienzeit bei Ambrosius Gabler in Nürnberg schuf (Vgl. Johann Adam Klein, „Am Brunnen", 1811, Bleistift auf Papier, 11,9 x 15,8 cm, Kunsthalle Mannheim, Inv. Nr. G 648 [A.I. 774]; „Der Freund Georg Christoph Wilder", 1810, Bleistift auf Papier, 11,5 x 12,5 cm, Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig, Inv. Nr. NJ 805). Bevor er im September 1811 nach Wien aufbricht, hat Gabler ihm in den sechs Jahren seiner Lehre neben einer Einführung in die druckgraphischen Techniken auch die Augen dafür geöffnet, dass sich die Einheit des Ganzen aus der Summe seiner Teile ergibt. Im Detail sollte Klein den Schlüssel für seine Bilder finden. Und auch unsere Zeichnung ist von dieser Sehnsucht nach dem Mikrokosmos geprägt, der für ihn die Welt aufschließt. Jede Falte der damals beliebten Suwarowstiefel mit ihren am oberen Rand tief ausgeschnittenen Bögen, jede Schattierung des langen Fracks, der Ohrring, der große Hut, die Klappen der Flöte: all dies sind Elemente einer Weltaneignung, die aus dem Flüchtigen der Anschauung eine Beständigkeit zu schälen sucht. So scheint der Detailreichtum der Kleidung das versteckte Gesicht gleichsam zu kompensieren und zum eigentlichen Porträt zu werden. Klein war ein Meister dieser vermeintlich beständigen Transitorik. Oft löst sich in den Zeichnungen die Umgebung in skizzierte Strichlagen auf, ganz so, als würden sie sich nur im Zentrum der Darstellung bündeln, um etwas vorstellig zu machen. Aber so schwebt in ihnen das Moment der Auflösung immer mit und vermittelt trotz der genrehaften Präsenz den Aspekt des Zeitlichen. Gerade in dieser Vereinigung von Gegensätzlichkeiten liegt der große Reiz dieser Blätter, die Kleins meisterhaften Umgang mit dem Bleistift dokumentieren. Es handelt sich um einen Gesamtpreis inkl. Versandkosten innerhalb der BRD. Umsatzsteuer wird wegen Differenzbesteuerung nach §25a UstG weder erhoben noch ausgewiesen. Zustand: Insgesamt guter Zustand, minimal fleckig.

        Recherches, expériences et observations physiologiques sur l'homme dans l'état de somnambulisme naturel et dans le somnambulisme provoqué par l'acte magnétique.

      Paris, Dentu, 1811, in 8°, de 5ff. XII-430pp. 1f. d'errata, cart. papier marbré bleu moderne genre ancien, bon exemplaire à toutes marges. Edition originale d'une des premières études d'importance sur le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel. Importante synthèse des travaux de Puységur, disciple de Mesmer et découvreur du somnambulisme magnétique. Il complète et amplifie ici les annonces faites dans ses "Mémoires" de 1784-86, réaffirme que le différence majeure entre le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel réside dans le phénomène de dépendance du sujet magnétisé par rapport au magnétiseur dans le cas du somnambulisme artificiel. Il constate qu'en général le somnambulisme naturel est lié à l'état de sommeil. Il observe les modifications de conscience en état de sommeil magnétique, ce qui ouvrira la voie à la notion "d'inconscient". Il donne aussi la description des précieuses techniques que Mesmer refusait de révéler. Après une analyse détaillée de différents cas et manifestations somnambuliques, facultés des somnambules, clairvoyance, vision, etc... il conclut sur les dangers de l'utilisation du somnambulisme magnétique. ¶ Caillet n°2276 - Crabtree n° 237 "A significant study of natural and magnetic somnambulism by the discoverer of the latter." - Wellcome II.331 - Hirsch IV.691 - Eimas Heirs of Hippocrates n° 1097.

      x, [6], 131 [i.e., 132], [4] pp. 4to. The first American work to be published on surveying, providing an account of the mathematical principles associated with various tasks important to the surveyor. Moore was an experienced surveyor by the time he published this work, and part of the aim of this work is to provide methods superior to those in common use at the time, which Moore believed to be crude. He states in his preface that "[the] original surveys of this Country, so far as my Knowledge (from Acquaintance and Information) extends, are very confused and incorrect... the Cheapness of Lands superseding the Necessity of Precision... This, joined to the Consideration of the large Tracts of appropriated Lands belonging to the United States, renders the Art I am treating of, at this Time peculiarly important." The Treaty of Paris was less than 15 years in the past at the time of publication, and during these years a great deal of land changed ownership. Little did Moore know that less than ten years later the size of the nation would double due to the Louisiana Purchase, making this work even more timely than he had originally surmised.KEYWORDS: MATHEMATICS MATH LAND SURVEY First edition. Collated and complete, with page 64 repeated as called for (Evans 30810). This copy belonged to Cyrus Avery (his name and date [Jany 2nd 1811] on first preface page), a surveyor himself. Avery's grandson, also named Cyrus, was the highway commissioner responsible for the construction of the famous Route 66. Boards rubbed, endpapers moderately foxed, lightly foxed throughout.

        Afbeeldingen van de Kleeding, Zeden en Gewoonten in Holland, met den aanvang der negentiende eeu: Tableaux Des Habillements, des Moeurs et des Costumes en Hollande au Commencement du Dix-Neuvième Siècle.

      4to. Finely and handsomely bound in half tan Regency calf over marbled boards, the spine with 5 raised bands exquisitely and extravagantly decorated in gilt in compartments with a repeating scroll-tool design, lettered direct in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges, housed within a custom-made beige cloth-covered fall-down-back box with green cloth label lettered in gilt; pp. [58]; with fine stipple-engraved, and hand-coloured, allegorical frontispiece of the Muse of Drawing by Louis Portman after Jacques Kuyper, together with 20 other fine, and exquisite, engraved plates with detailed and expert hand-colouring throughout; a wonderfully pleasing copy; externally fine; recently expertly, and invisibly, rejointed at upper board by Charles Gledhill, internally also preserved in exceptionally crisp state with occasional very light, and inoffensive, browning and spotting (almost exclusively confined to text pages) and some of the unavoidable offsetting from plates to blank guards, with a neat contemporary inscription, dated 1817, to front blank. Early, revised, edition, complete with an additional 4 plates, with extensive explanatory text in both Dutch and French. This work originally appeared in 5 instalments from 1803 to 1807, with a total of 16 plates. All images carry the imprint of Evert Maaskamp and Colnaghi & Co., apart from plate 1, which only mentions the Dutch printer. It is a historically, ethnologically, and culturally, important volume of prints of costumes of the various Batavian provinces, designed to underline their antique origin, and their "absolute Dutchness". The venture was also, in part, a propaganda exercise, designed to reinforce Dutch national identity following a period of political unrest. Similar works had appeared in France, England, Germany and Switzerland in response to the growing intellectual interest in the study of popular culture. This also stimulated artistic, and commercial, competition between nations. The beautiful and animated backgrounds which were drawn from nature, the beautifully observed and documented details of costume (which were drawn from life), and the extensive anecdotal text, provide a social, cultural, and historical context for the dress (Eveline Koolhaas-Grosfeld. "Une nouvelle image des Pays-Bas: l'identité nationale par l'estampe").

      - Jenaische Allg. Literatur-Zeit. VIII.II (no. 110, 15 May 1811); KVK (5, 3 & 1 copies); WorldCat (4, 1 & 1 copies). First and only edition, including the two rare supplements, of a work on quadrature that the author calls a "new very simple theory for squaring curved surfaces based on the summation of infinite series," intended to make differential and integral calculus unnecessary. His goal is to demonstrate the usefulness of sums of infinite series in place of differential and integral calculus. The 1811 review found little new in Fresenius's "theory" and noted its similarity to the methods of John Wallis's 1656 Arithmeticam Infinitorum. Little is known about the author, who signed only the dedications, but parts 1 and 2 are dedicated to teachers, suggesting he was still young. Fresenius is therefore probably the identically named author of a half dozen works on religion, history and education published in Frankfurt in the years 1836 to 1853, including Zur Geschichte der Erfindung des Buchdrucks.In very good condition, with part 3 slightly browned and its edges tattered. An immature mathematical work by a curious author, with the rare supplements containing clues to his early life.

Encadernação da época com lombada e cantos em pele, cansados. Ilustrado com as vinhetas tipográficas dos brasões da Casa Real nas folhas de rosto de cada Relação, com grande importância no seu conjunto para o estudo da evolução e variantes heráldicas: Rainha D. Maria I / Principe Regente; Reino Unido de Portugal e Brasil; e Dom Miguel. Exemplar apresenta na guarda interior da encadernação um texto manuscrito com uma nova organização do mapa judicial da época. À margem do texto existem anotações manuscritas da época (circa 1830-1840) junto das entradas dos nomes, acrescentando informação coeva a cada um dos mesmos, tais como: ?Lente de Matemática?; ?Contador de fora do Distrito do Porto?; 'Juiz em Braga'; 'Juiz em Guimarães', 'Ministro de Estado'; 'Ministro de Estado no Rio de Janeiro'; 'Morreu na Forca do Porto'; ?Morreu na Forca de Lisboa?; etc. Esta informação da época é particularmente curiosa pois a dita Sociedade dos Divodignos, grupo de estudantes liberais da Universidade de Coimbra, matou dois lentes partidários do rei D. Miguel. Em 1828 foram 13 membros daquela organização secreta que consumaram em Condeixa-a-Nova o assalto à comitiva de lentes e clérigos do Cabido de Coimbra que se dirigiam a Lisboa para saudar o rei absolutista e portadores de uma lista de estudantes liberais a expulsar da Universidade. Os estudantes para a missão de assassinarem os professores foram sorteados na madrugada do dia 18 de Março de 1828. Reuniram-se Rua do Loureiro. Após a escaramuça os assaltantes foram capturados. Em Junho de 1828, os primeiros nove universitários foram enforcados no cais de Lisboa, perante uma multidão que se acotovelava para assistir à execução colectiva. Manuel Inocêncio de Araújo Mansilha (ver supra RELAÇÃO E INDICE ALPHABETICO DOS ESTUDANTES. 1826, pag. 7) é particularmente referido por outras fontes da época por ter sido baptizado no dia da sua execução. Estas listas de estudantes fornecem-nos importantíssimas informações sobre a suas origens em Portugal e no Brasil, e mais importante ainda a sua morada em Coimbra enquanto estudantes (em alojamentos, em republicas, em casas religiosas e noutros locais), podendo uma moderna análise informática demonstrar a rede de ligações entre os mesmos.

        Woburn Sheepshearing. Dedicated by Permission to His Grace the Duke of Bedford. By His Grace's most obedient and very humble, George Garrard.

      London: G. Garrard, 31 May 1811. Original aquatint, stipple, etching and engraving; 540 x 800 mm., mounted and framed. A large and most interesting image of the annual sheep shearing festival held by the Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey. This great agricultural show was started by Frances Russell (1763-1802) who established a model farm at Woburn with 'every convenience that could be desired for the breeding of cattle and experiments in farming'. This included valuable experiments upon the respective merits of the various breeds of sheep. The sheep shearing exhibitions lasted for days and the whole English agricultural world was invited to this splendid event and the week concluded with banquets for the Duke's numerous guests staying at Woburn Abbey. The scene shows an enormous crowd of noblemen, gentlemen, farmers, and agricultural labourers inspecting the numerous sheep and cattle whilst a sheep shearing contest is taking place in a pen on the right.This contest is being judged by an eminent circle including (as noted in the key): Arthur Young, Secretary to the Board of Agriculture, Sir John Sinclair, President of the Board of Agriculture, Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Coke M.P., and others including Sir Humphry Davy.Sir Joseph Banks wearing a sash is shown in the middle of the judging panel in the lower left of the image, seated and holding a cane. The caption describes this scene "... two men shearing for a Prize in the foreground in the presence of the leading Members of the Board of Agriculture". Sir Joseph was the key figure in breeding merino sheep and in the introduction of this species into Australia. Not only was he the leading advocate for the establishment of the merino breed of sheep in England, he was in charge of the Royal flock of 500 sheep given to King George 111 by the Spanish Court. It is recorded that he sold off his own sheep on the Oaklands Estate, Lincolnshire to devote himself to the care and breeding of the merino and declared "merino sheep will in time be procured with carcasses perfectly fashionable and wool as perfectly fine..."The Australian sheep industry began when John Macarthur imported three rams and five ewes in 1797 on the advice of Sir Joseph.The artist of this fine image was George Garrard ARA (1760-1826), a pupil of the Cumbrian sporting artist Sawrey Gilpin. He specialised in depicting the improved breeds of farm animals of the Agricultural Revolution and was instrumental in the passing of a bill to secure copyright on sculptured and cast works of art. The caption states that this fine and large image is " stipple and outline etched by M.N. Bate, figures and landscape by J.C. Stadler, the whole touched and arranged by the original painter" In very good condition overall.

        Dramatic Works of Ben Jonson, and Beaumont and Fletcher.

      London: Stockdale, 1811. Four volumes, small quarto, with an engraved frontispiece of each playwright by Audinet;, full diced Russia, gilt spines with raised bands. Beautifully bound set of the works of master playwright Ben Johnson, for many years the equal to Shakespeare on the English stage. This set also prints the works of Jonson's luminous contemporaries Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher.Jonson's career was extraordinary even by the standards of his time. Born into humble circumstances he was a brilliant student but worked as a bricklayer before establishing a role in the theatre (John Aubrey depicts him reciting Homer with a trowel in hand). Jonson also served as a soldier in the British force sent to expel the Spanish from Holland in 1591, and narrowly escaped the gallows for murdering a fellow actor in a duel. Never a brilliant actor, Jonson was manifestly a poet and playwright who regularly upset the status quo; he suffered incarceration in the Tower under Queen Elizabeth although later enjoyed the patronage of her successor James I. An appealing set in an unusual binding.

        Essai sur la force animale, et sur le principe du mouvement volontaire.

      Paris, Firmin Didot, 1811. ____ Seule édition. Très rare ouvrage du célèbre horloger Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823), publié à ses frais et à petit nombre. Il n'a jamais été mis dans le commerce et a été distribué par son auteur. "La cause physique qui produit la force et le mouvement des animaux est un problème qui a souvent occupé l'esprit humain, et qui est encore loin d'être résolu. Cette question présente tant de difficultés, que l'homme croit devoir s'en interdire la recherche, et se résigne à l'ignorance sur ce point." Une note manuscrite retrouvée dans un exemplaire de ce livre, citée par Quérard, Supercheries littéraires, conteste l'idée que Bréguet en soit l'auteur. Ce qui nous parait très douteux : cette note, pleine d'aigreur, est très insultante pour Bréguet. Son auteur le qualifie de "tout à fait illettré", (il était membre de l'Académie des Sciences et du Bureau des longitudes !). ll affirme qu'il l'a rédigé d'après les papiers de Gauterot qui s'est occupé de galvanisme. Or, on lit dans l'introduction de cet 'Essai', que le galvanisme est une théorie "tombée d'elle-même". Bon exemplaire, très grand de marges. Dos fendillé. On trouve trois importantes corrections ou additions au texte pages 6 et 32 qui sont peut-être de la main de Bréguet.*****. Grand in-8. Collation : 39 pp., 1 planche h.-t. Broché, couverture muette de l'époque.

        Nouvel Atlas des Enfans et des Commerçans, ou les premiers élémens de la Géographie...

      Paris: Chez Saintin, 1811. Octavo, two hand-coloured plates and seven hand-coloured maps (four double-page, three folding), some loss to a few pages (seemingly original defects in the paper, and not affecting text); half calf, a little rubbed, bumped at corners, a handsome copy. A wonderful children's Atlas, with delightful depictions of Tahiti, New Zealand and Hawaii. Although much reprinted and very popular, this work is now rare in any edition.This Atlas includes two exquisite plates, each with twelve small vignettes, detailing the peoples of the world. The first three main panels show images of European, Asian, and African scenes, while the fourth has 'American' images; there are not only charming images of Iroquois, Californians, and Peruvians, but incredibly, the three final scenes show New Zealanders, Tahitians and inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands (here accidentally called "Americans", almost a century before their formal annexation). Each of the vignettes is also vouchsafed a very brief note, with some unusual commentary: we learn that the New Zealanders love their children, that the lower-caste Hawaiians prostrate themselves on the ground before royalty, and that the only quadrupeds in Tahiti are dogs, cats, and rats.The series of maps is equally interesting, with good depictions of France, Europe, Africa and the Americas. There is also a large double-hemisphere map of the globe by Blondeau: New Holland is shown still attached to Van Diemens Land, and the Pacific Islands are represented in some detail, showing the Society Islands, the Marquesas, and the Friendly Isles. The Sandwich Islands are also clearly marked, with the familiar caption that 'here Captain Cook was killed'.Saintin was a publisher of popular editions of authors such as Moliere and Homer, and issued several such works of geographical instruction.

        An Analysis of Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England...

      London: Cadell and Davies, 1811. Octavo; an excellent copy in contemporary half calf (spine renewed) and marbled boards, new endpapers. First edition of a rare piece by of one of Australia's first civilian judges, one of our first poets (and warm friend of Charles Lamb), and a man often unfairly remembered by the young Disraeli's dismissive description, "a noisy, obtrusive, jargonic judge". The nature of Field's book is made clear by the full title: "An Analysis of Blackstone's Commentaries... in a series of questions to which the student is to frame his own answers, by reading that work". This copy has neat marginal annotations by John De Mole, who has signed the title-page in London in 1816.Unknown to Ferguson and to the 1986 Addenda, this is one of Field's earliest publications, written at a time when he was supporting himself by his literary endeavours. An excellent copy, spine renewed.

"In 1802, on the death of the Duke of Parma, he was summoned by the impresario Ricci to conduct the La Scala orchestra, where he remained until 1833, directing operas by Mozart, Mayr, Paer, Rossini, Bellini, the young Donizetti and Mercadante.... From 1808 to 1835 he was first professor of violin and viola at the newly opened Milan Conservatory... Continuing the northern Italian tradition of Sammartini and others, Rolla was very active in the field of instrumental music... Rolla's compositions, which number some 500 or more, relate to both the Italian instrumental tradition (particularly that of Boccherini) and the Viennese Classical style... In his chamber music Rolla displays his increasing familiarity with Beethoven's music." Antonio Rostagno in Grove Music Online. "In his compositions, he elevated the viola, which before had been rarely used as a solo instrument, to a status equal to the violin's; especially his duets for violin and viola enjoyed wide circulation and many reprints." Antje Tumat in MGG2.

        LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY, TRANSMITTING SUNDRY DOCUMENTS EXHIBITING CERTAIN PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENTS WHICH HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE CITY AND HARBOR OF NEW YORK, IN CONFORMITY WITH AN ACT OF CONGRESS, ENTITLED "AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF TRYING THE PRACTICAL USE OF THE TORPEDO OR SUB-MARINE EXPLOSION."

      Washington: A. and G. Way, 1811. 55pp., including six in-text illustrations. Later paper boards, gilt spine label. Hinges cracked, corners slightly worn, spine label rubbed. Some foxing and toning. About very good. A rare government report, consisting of letters from inventor Robert Fulton and others on several experiments involving torpedos and underground mines. In 1810, Congress authorized Robert Fulton, best known for his work on canal navigation and steamboats, to pursue the development of torpedo and sub-marine weaponry as a means of national defense. Fulton proceeded to conduct several experiments in New York harbor to test the devices. This report contains letters from several witnesses to the experiments, including Oliver Wolcott and Cadwallader Colden, giving a wealth of firsthand observations on several of the experiments conducted in the fall of 1810, as well as letters from Fulton giving his spin on the results. The illustrations include drawings of torpedos and boats. The Navy Department concluded that "Mr. Fulton has not, in the opinion of a majority of the committee, proved that the government ought to rely upon his system as a means of national defence." Fulton argued, however, that he had made important improvements and that he was confident of success, if only he could have access to the rest of the appropriations that had been set aside for his experiments - an excuse that military contractors have re-used and perfected over the decades since. OCLC, Rink, and Shaw & Shoemaker together locate only a handful of copies. Rare and important in the development of submarine weaponry and military procurement processes. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 24168. RINK 2199. SABIN 26196. HOWES F417, "aa." OCLC 30133008, 33820186.
